Your instructors will expect you to give them a number of items.
- Your name and course section number.
- A short, clear written statement that includes the following elements:
- A title
- A short abstract (about a paragraph) that summarizes what you did and why.
- A short introduction (about 2 - 3 paragraphs) that explains some of the background to the investigation. You should get this information from; text books, the World Wide Web, or specialized biology books found in the library or on the Internet. If you are in any doubt, ask your instructor for advice
- Results. Write out exactly what you found. Usually a table of results for each experiment and, where necessary, a graph. Label every table and every graph carefully so it is clear to which experiments the results belong, and describe the circumstances of the experiment (i.e. the values of all the other variables, etc.).
- Conclusions. The heart of your answer. Describe in about 3 - 5 paragraphs what conclusions you can draw from your research.
Hand it in. Good luck with your research.
